Well this week has been a stressful week due to many circumstances, but the main one must be planning for my spring break.
Yes. Spring break = stress.
I have been trying to plan the best spring break of my life, especially since last year was such a crappy spring break. So to make this year a better year for me, I decided I wanted to go somewhere. Anywhere that gets me out of Florida.
Being a student, however, makes my life so much more complicating. Struggling with loans, paying bills, trying to find a decent job, trying to budget life itself...this is life as I know it. So to find something within my budget out of Florida is impossible. IMPOSSIBLE.
Especially on Spring break.
As perfect as Miami is for Spring break, I have done everything there is to do in Miami. Besides I loathe how rude the people can be, and there are other factors that would ruin my Spring break. Did I mention that one of those factors was my ex-boyfriend completely ruining last Spring break for me?
Last year, I was in Miami...waiting. I was waiting for my ex-boyfriend to invite me to hang out with him; he never did. He had come to terms that he would use Spring break as our "break" from each other, and as I waited like a damn door mat, he was out having the time of his life.
This is how that need to get out of Florida developed. I was not going to be the same damn door mat waiting for someone to say "hey, lets do something."
As I have learned through experiences, if you want something, you have to do it yourself. So this time I prepared myself. I kept looking through cruises, hotels, flights etc...I even went as far as looking through bus services to New York. Imagine a bus ride for at least 16 hours...
Yeah, it wouldn't have been pretty at all...
I thought I would never find something, but then out of nowhere, as if in a dream, I found a vacation package within my budget! Not only that, it was within my friends budget too, which made everything perfect.
What better way to rest from studying and exams than a trip to the Bahamas!
That's right! I am going to the Bahamas!! for 5 days/4 nights. Airfare and hotel. I finally made the reservation and now I can finally relax.
Though It will not be for my whole Spring break (and I will have to go to Miami), I am just happy I found something outside of Florida.
I just need to do a few more things for my trip, but other than that I feel as if a weight has been lifted. I just hope I can find my passport.
